Seventh Annual Israeli Anti-Apartheid Week - by Stephen Lendman

The web site apartheidweek.com announced it in over 60 cities worldwide, including:

Adelaide, Al Quds, Amman, Amsterdam, Bard (NY), Basel, Beirut, Belfast, Berkeley, Bern, Bethlehem, Bilbao, Birzeit, Bordeaux, Boston, Brisbane, Brussels, Cape Town, Cleveland, Denver, Dublin, Dundee, Durban, Edmonton, Gainesville, Gaza, Geneva, Grahamstown, Haifa, Houston, Ireland, Johannesburg, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Le Mans, Lille, Lillehammer, London (Ontario), Lyon, Melbourne, Mexico City, Miami, Midwest, Montreal, Nablus, Naples, Nazereth, Neuchatel, New York, Ottawa, Paris, Perth, Peterborough, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Providence, Regina, St. Louis, Stellenbosch, Sudbury, Toronto, Utrecht, Yaffa, and Zurich.

Other cities not officially part of IAW may also participate, including major ones involved before.

Launched in Toronto in 2005 by over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations, it's held annually to support calls for Global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) until Occupied Palestine is free. 

Last year's IAW was "incredibly successful" with over 55 participating cities worldwide. Planned again are lectures, multimedia events, films, cultural performances, demonstrations, and other actions to highlight successes and injustices that make BDS efforts crucial to end Israeli occupation and apartheid. Each city has its own schedule and speakers. Organizers urge everyone this year to join the anti-apartheid struggle for justice, equality and peace.

Supporters call IAW an expression of Palestinian solidarity, a call to boycott, divest and impose sanctions, and demand Israel be held accountable for decades of oppressive occupation, imperial wars, lawlessness, expropriating Palestinian land, denying self-determination, the right of return, targeted killings, torture, illegal arrests and incarcerations, and denying  social, political and economic justice and equality, including for Israeli Arabs.

Because of IAW's popularity, greater flexibility this year will accommodate campuses, organizations, cities and regions on different schedules to participate more conveniently:
